Description: A clear ruby red colour, with very light orange reflections. A net aroma in which liquorice stands out at first, immediately followed by a fruity scent; the aroma makes you scent it again and again to discover different and pleasant facets. The fruity aroma magnificently prevails after a few minutes in a glass. A very enveloping, fresh and harmonious taste, with a delicate and tasty presence of wood. A long lasting taste that invites to sip it slowly again and again.
JS92, James Suckling
"This is always a precise and focused Barolo with dried cherry, floral and dried mushroom character. Medium to full body, polished tannins and a berry, tea and light leather aftertaste. Delicious now but much better in three or four years."
WS92, Wine Spectator
"Starts out with floral and berry aromas and flavors, quickly giving way to tar, eucalyptus and wild herb elements. Firm and tense, with dense, dusty tannins shoring up the lingering finish."
